The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce today released for publication in the Federal Register a final rule amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding and revising the “entity list” and the “military-end user list.”
The final rule [PDF 299 KB] adds 28 entities to the entity list—under the destinations of China, Finland, Germany, Oman, Pakistan, Russia, and the UAE—because they have been determined by the U.S. government to be acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States.
The rule also revises two existing entries on the entity list under the destinations of China and Pakistan, and removes an entity from the military-end user list under the destination of China.

The entity list identifies entities for which there is reasonable cause to believe that the entities have been involved, are involved, or pose a significant risk of being or becoming involved in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. The EAR impose additional license requirements on, and limit the availability of, most license exceptions for exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) when a listed entity is a party to the transaction.
